Day Trip to Lewes Delaware

I finally made it to Delaware!

sunny 84 °F

I have been wanting to get to Delaware for the longest time. It was until today, the only state east of the Mississippi that I hadn't been to. So I decided to make a day trip of it and cross DE off that 'states I haven't been to' list. I asked for a recommendation on the city-data forums as I didn't know where would be the best place to go. I was given a couple suggestions, but Lewes (pronounced Lew Iss) It is the oldest town in DE and is really beautiful. If you like old colonial homes, this is a very pleasant town to visit. The downtown shopping district is pretty much exclusively geared towards tourists, but was attractive and only a couple of blocks long.

I only spent a couple hours in town and driving around it, but really enjoyed it. The weather was perfect and the drive was pleasant. I wish I had found a good place to take a photo of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, but I didn't notice any place to pull off. The view from the bridge is really beautiful. I felt myself relaxing as soon as I saw the water. There is something very soothing, for me at least. about large bodies of water.

Lewes and what I saw of Delaware was very nice. I wouldn't mind returning sometime. http://www.leweschamber.com/
